About the course

The Forensic Process aims to prepare veterinary staff for the possibility of forensic involvement in animal abuse and welfare cases, across the two main strands of exposure: your own intuition and suspicion, and formal referral from relevant authorities.

Any veterinary practice could be called upon at any time to assist in such matters. By guiding participants through the forensic process, a variety of real case examples will be presented and the unique opportunity to create a case-file to complement your practice notes is offered. In addition, a network of experts will be available, to support you not only through the course, but during your career.

This online course takes approximately 16 hours to complete, which can be undertaken at the participants’ own pace and at any time over the course’s 2-month period. All resources are fully downloadable, including templates to support the documentation and examination of animals (and related materials), the recognition and recovery of potential evidence – and what to do with it, once you have it!

Upon completion, participants will be awarded 16 certified CPD hours and access to a bespoke suite of courses for further development, in this fascinating but critical aspect of veterinary practice.

This course is facilitated by ArroGen Veterinary Forensics, in collaboration with the University of Surrey.
